About Garrett Hill

Real Estate Professional in Austin.

Garrett Hill purchased this house in 2012

Why Garrett Hill chose Austin

This property showcases great space with its 6 bedroom and 7 baths complete with a 550 square foot deck with gas burning fire pits and hard wired up-lights in a massive oak tree. The Betty Jo is a great private place to entertain. Not only is it minutes away from downtown and South Congress district, but it's a short drive to Circuit of the Americas, Lake Austin, and the University of Texas.

What makes this house unique

As mentioned before, the entertaining deck space is truly one of a kind. The amenities, furnishings, location, and contemporary feel make my home something I'm proud to share. The indoor/outdoor space close to downtown is definitely something that makes this property unique.

Great home - location, size, cleanliness, has everything you could ask from an Austin rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented The Betty Jo for a short weekend trip w. friends and couldn't be more pleased. The accommodations were top notch - large rooms, multiple kitchens & common rooms, and a great outdoor space. Garrett was easily accessible and provided any assistance we needed leading up to & during the trip. The location puts you just a short cab ride from 6th St. & Rainey, but provides a quiet, clean setting to return to when you just want to relax. Would highly recommend The Betty Jo to anyone planning a get together in ATX. Enjoy!

Good party house

  • 3 of 5

Sleeps more than advertised. Strange layout if you're renting both sides. Home shows it's wear and tear. If you're just looking for a place to crash for a ACL or another event, it works well. But if you want a nice home as well, I'd continue looking.

Owner's Response: Hmaid, The ACL group before you was really hard on the house. Since your departure I replaced a couch in one of the living rooms that was torn up and deck 2x4's that were broken. House is looking good. Hope to have you back in the future. Thank you

Perfect for our Bachelor Party of 18

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a great location and even though the house had 2 separate units, it worked out just fine for a bunch of guys just looking for a place to rest our heads. Garrett was easy to work with and very responsive. I would recommend the Betty Jo to anyone looking for a no-frills, convenient house for a large group. The neighbors were never an issue, which is always a concern when travelling with a big group.

Awesome Property!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property. Garrett was very prompt with my texts and calls. We were a bit worried about the amenities since the description wasn't the best. But he assured us the place would have everything we would normally expect and it did. We even found a poker set in the closet and that was one of the fun moments from the trip. Would definitely rent this place again.

Great house for large group1

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house for a bachelor party with 14+ guys. Two houses in one worked out great. House was clean and the air was on when we arrived which was great since it was 100+ degrees that day. Very close to downtown and easy for cabs to find. Garrett was very responsive throughout the trip when I had a few questions. Would rent again...
